Description of Activity
Describe the overall Harvest the Power program. Explain how you have configured the program for your congregation and why you chose the particular workshops you plan to present. You may wish to describe the curriculum's design of three, four-workshop modules with themes of identity, purpose and path.
Share the program goals with the group. Ask which goals matter especially to participants and if they have other goals to add. Record feedback on newsprint and tell participants you will use it in your planning.
